Going to Ecuador in november for sightseeing & to check it out as possible country to retire to. Any Recommendations/suggestions/advice?
I also recommend Quito as well. A beautiful city with a lot to absorb. I enjoyed Banos a lot as well, just a 3 hour bus ride from Quito. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did. almost 7 years ago
I LOVED the food in Quito. I never got anything I didn't like, no matter where I went. Uncle Hos is a great place for gringos to check out. Lots of fantastic places in la marsical as well. Go to a local place and be sure to try llapangachos! My favourite thing to eat when I'm in town. Delicious! about 7 years ago
So many great options. When I stay, I use Lugano Suites. Apartment style rooms for a great rate. And the neighbourhood is very safe with the Carolina park right nearby. They have a fantastic rooftop deck with a grill you can use. about 7 years ago
